Kingston Arts Centre


Kingston Arts is home to three contemporary visual arts galleries: G1 + G2 at Kingston Arts Centre in Moorabbin and G3 Artspace at Shirley Burke Theatre in Parkdale.

Each of the three gallery spaces feature curated shows as well as exhibitions from the wider arts and cultural sector. 

G1 + G2 are programmed as one space. The focus for G1 + G2 is to show a diverse program of professionally developed contemporary art exhibitions, including shows developed by Kingston Arts, and enable opportunities for curators to develop new exhibitions in partnership with the Visual Arts Curator.

G3 Artspace is the Kingston Arts community access gallery – the primary space for local artists to exhibit solo and small group exhibitions as well as programmed special events. Kingston Arts strongly encourage independent applications from emerging, mid-career and established artists for solo or group shows, in addition to community arts groups. Find out more
